Default A sad day for modern music

Noted mainstay of the Chicago musc scene, who for the last decade has entertained and inspired (and head-butted) thousands of local music fans and musicians, Wesley Willis took a ride on the great CTA bus in the sky yesterday.



Rock Over London, Rock On Chicago

I feel really lucky I got to know Wez. My heart is broken. I'm thinking of posting a photo here of the two of us together....

He will be remembered by his music forever.

Rock on Wez...Rock on....

Set them free and let me see!

I can't tell you how upset I am over this. This guy was doing something in music no ever did before, and no one will ever be able to duplicate. Yeah, he was the most formulaic musician in history, but he put out exactly what he wanted to, and the people (including me) appreciated and loved his music and his persona because of that. He will be missed. ROCK OVER LONDON, ROCK OVER CHICAGO.....WESLEY WILLIS, THE KING OF SYNTHESIZER ART ROCK!!!!!

Happy Ramadakwanzaakahmas solstice!

I never got to see him live

Pain, sorrow, despair, and ultimately loneliness.............. these are the only things to truly love me. Melodrumatic for life.

I was lucky enough to catch one of the last Fiasco shows, almost 7 years ago now? wow! Despite some asshole throwing a beer at Wesley, the show was a singular experience.

I missed this post before I posted my little eulogy. I need to stay a little more current, I guess. Anyway, after hearing one song, I was hooked on Wesley. I got to see him twice in the last year. It was great. I have a picture of me getting my headbutt, too. As for him being formulaic, it's funny... the first time I saw him, he was asking what song to play next, and someone yelled "They're all the same song!" To which Wesley immediately yelled back "FUCK YOU! They are not the same song!" And after the show, he was selling CDs... "Who will buy one of my CDs? They are $10."
"Do you have change for a $20?"
"There are different CDs in the box. You can get two for $20."

*sigh* There shall never be another...
